We had been driving up and down Mayor Magrath Drive handing out resumes, for what felt like hours. I was at the point of desperation. Having lived in Lethbridge for over a month, with my EI about to be cut off, I still didn’t have a job. So, when we came upon The Mandarin, that shabby little Chinese restaurant in the corner of a run down strip mall, I reluctantly walked through the door, resume in hand, all the while praying that they weren’t hiring.
I had already applied to every office job I was qualified for (or not) and had even handed resumes in at Earls and all the nicer restaurants in town. Although, I wasn’t exactly holding my breath for a job offer from Earls. I really don’t think Earls liked my look. They had a rep at the time for hiring “trendy” looking people. Think sorority girl or frat boy. And I definitely didn’t fit that bill. The worst part was that I didn’t even want to work in a restaurant!
